It’s just one way that we can say thank you for their contributions to our community,” said Trustee Robyn Pike, Chairperson of the Community Relations Committee, which organized the event.  “We hope that everyone who attended the fair was able to find out about a useful community group or resource. It’s the least we can do to give back to those who do so much for Lombard.”
